About Me

Most couples entering into counseling have a unified agenda and agree on wanting to keep the relationship together. Unfortunately, some couples can enter into counseling with mixed agendas, meaning that one person wants to try counseling while the other one doesn’t. Without working together, you’ll just go in circles, wasting time and resources while becoming frustrated with the process alone. You need an agreed destination and the coordinated, sustained effort it takes to move forward.

I have the experience with working with couples who are dealing with various situations such as co-parenting, infidelity, and adjustment in finances, prior diagnosis in mental disorders, communication issues, divorce, religious differences, and personal insecurities that may be hindering the dynamics in the relationship.

An agreed-upon plan built with the help of a counselor can often save you countless hours of anger, conflict, and bitterness.

I look forward to helping you and supporting you in understanding all is not lost!

Dr. Patterson is encouraging, warm, and approachable. She listens to our concerns and ask the questions to dive deeper into the issues. Dr. Patterson’s encourages dialogue and very perceptive to see the deeper issue being masked. I would recommend her for couples counseling.

Mrs. Patterson is really good at her job. She's very encouraging, gets you thinking about the situations at hands, is very honest with you without sugar coating it and has been an all around tremendous counselor to me & my husband...even when he has been resistant.

Kim has been a major part in my life by helping me identify the true understanding of myself and a relationship. She offers a variety of techniques that I have never would have tried in order for me to cope with anxiety that I developed in my relationship. She is a great listener, has positive energy, always is available and encouraging. She somehow says the things that help me refocus and put my life in a perspective of being the best individual, husband and father. Overall, I am a better person than I was 2 months ago. Thanks.
